Public Health

The mission of the Butte County Public Health Department (BCPHD) is to protect the public through promoting individual, community, and environmental health. 

STD Data & Reports

In an effort to combat the spread of STDs, all counties in California confidentially track and report the number of confirmed STD cases in their community. The Butte County Public Health Department monitors the number of reported STDs in our county as well as administers a range of programs and services. As the Public Health Department, it is our goal to protect the health of the community through prevention, early diagnosis and appropriate management and control of STDs. This is achieved through surveillance, disease investigation, patient education, community awareness and acting as a resource to local physicians, nurses and medical personnel.
